GPS Systems for the Earthmoving Contractor in Sydney, Australia

Maximize equipment productivity and easily adjust field operations as needed.


The leap in technological advancements of GPS technology is transforming the earthmoving sites. GPS, when applied in the earthmoving sector, can be a viable asset to increase the overall efficiency of the job. Braemac Pty Ltd, in cooperation with Winmate Inc., developed a 13.3-inch ultra-rugged tablet computer with GPS systems for the earthmoving contractor in Sydney, Australia.

The 13.3-inch ultra-rugged tablet M133 series, with GPS systems allow the machine operator to use accurate real-time position information to make decisions based on actual grade and design features. Some heavy equipment guidance systems can even operate the machine's implements automatically from a set design created for the particular job site. GPS guidance systems have very low tolerances up to two centimeters, making them extremely accurate compared to relying on the operator's skill level. Since the machine's GPS can know when it's off the design grade, this can reduce surveying and material costs required for a specific task.

Combining earthmoving contractors with a 13.3-inch ultra-rugged tablet M133 series equipped with GPS systems has a variety of industry benefits. These include:

  • Maximizes equipment productivity
  • Makes earthmoving jobs easier to plan
  • Easily adjust filed operations as needed
  • Minimizes delays
  • Revised surface files of excavated areas help keep plans up-to-date
  • Out-compete other bids by lowering costs
  • Reduces safety risks

Modern systems with GPS positioning have revolutionized the earthmoving industry and the different types used on job sites. The possibilities are endless, and maybe in the future, contractors in the earthmoving industries will discover other practical uses for GPS technology.

Main Challenges

  • Precise GPS positioning – For earthmoving contractors, accurate real-time mapping and positioning is the key to efficient site operations. The GPS/GNSS systems get their corrected RTK (real-time kinetic) positioning data from a base station set up at the job site. With the GPS/GNSS system running dozers or excavators, the operator can use the same base station and radio transmitter to guide multiple machines at the same time. The real-time kinetic signal is broadcast over a wide area and can be used simultaneously by any number of devices on a job site.
  • The rigor environment and strong vibration from the machine – Strong vibration and partially outdoor environment can bring challenges to conventional devices – often drops, temperature changes; sometimes even dust and water splashes may damage the device. The rugged tablet for earthmoving contractor automation must be that kind you trust regardless of the condition or situation.
  • After-sale service – When purchasing products enterprises do not want to worry about the service. They are looking for budgetary ease and convenience plus the peace of mind that any problem will be solved quickly and effectively.
As the operator starts moving material you will see great value in being able to move the correct amount of material, to the correct location the first time.
